Courage doesn't always roar - but wins Wimbledon

  Yes, but to have them on the court seems like an abuse of privilege.

That's what I was getting at. If he'd gone to Mirka and the kids I'd have had no problem with it, because it would be natural to want to share the moment with his family. It was the way the kids were brought to him that I objected to. I'm sorry, but I think it was a bit of a desperate attempt to drag the attention from the runner up, who was being cheered at the time by a crowd who could see how hard he'd fought.

I can't remember how she got there, but Kim Clijsters had her daughter Jada stand with her through the whole trophy ceremony when she won the 2009 US Open on her comeback. I thought that was magical and quite nice to watch. I don't see why Federer should have been stripped of the same privilege.

^ I don't know, maybe I'm cynical, but I don't think Federer's motive for it was the same as Clijsters.

On a slightly different point, has anyone else read about the gate they've put on CC so that winners don't have to climb over commentary boxes in future? It's a safety measure, but it seems a bit of a shame.

   Yes, I thought strengthening the roof would be a better option.

Nay lass...
Tommy harass.. Rusty Hewitt.. Kim cloisters.. First to come to mind.

Not at Wimbledon, though.    I think it was Pat Cash who first climbed up to his box when he won and he caused quite a shock among the Wimbledon worthies at the time.    Brash Aussie!!!!   Started a trend.   Never followed by Fed.    I remember Leyton Hewitt's wee blond boy who didn't want to be there.     Whistle

I think PseudoFed is David Law. He's been tweeting about him once or twice this weekend.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

No, the tennis commentator. Does a tennis podcast series you can download from iTunes.
